Institute of Medicine (IOM)
After discussion with your mentor, name one financial aspect, one quality aspect, and one clinical aspect that need to be taken into account in developing the evidence-based practice project. Explain how your proposal will, directly and indirectly, impact each of the aspects.
Speaking with the mentor, the financial aspect of the project would be hours spent trying to get nurses educated on the proposed guidelines for late preterm infants. Hours will be needed as well to get the basic checklist implemented into the computer in this particular area, which requires going to different committees and getting approvals needed. This takes more than one nurse or person to get this done. This requires more hours of pay, and that would be the financial aspect of the proposed project.
Now, the clinical aspect that has to be taken into account with developing the project would be how the nurses will accept the project. As lifelong learners, staff nurses continually encounter new knowledge of relevance to their patients. The conscientious nurse remains alert to clinical problems and encourages investigation into ways to improve patient outcomes(Di Lenoardi, 2014). The nurses need to be given research and data that proves this could help readmission of late preterm infants. If given this data, they would be involved in the process of implementing as well,
In 2001, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended evidenced based practice to improve healthcare outcomes(Stephens, 2013). This project is to improve the quality outcome of late preterm infants and prevent their readmission to hospital.
All the aspects brought together will make a good impact on the project the author believes with the research and data given to the nurses, implementation and then follow up of results will show this is a great solution to help alleviate many readmissions nationwide as well. If this hospital shows that the guidelines are helping there, then they can show other colleagues in the nation that this helps and also will cut costs by preventing readmissions.
